I love Ghost Hunters. I watch it regularly. This book is a compilation of the best cases from from their
two previous books.
It's a decent read, and it contains a little more background info from both Jason and Grant.
One question:
Does anyone remember the Jason Hawes of season one? He was a total skeptic who refused to use psychics in
their investigations, and refused to even say the word haunted.
Now, apparently, he is claiming to have supernatural visions that go away when he eats green olives. That's
quite a leap. Which do we believe?
Will the real Jason Hawes please stand up?

I have always been intrigued by the supernatural and have always believed that there is entities out there that cannot be explained. All of the cases described in the book,were either authenticated or disproved by the investigators by use of science and observation. There was a couple of cases that had me at the edge of my seat until I found out the true cause of the events. There were parts that I found humorous when Jason and Grant discovered the true reasons around some of the hauntings (bogus). Now that Halloween is coming up this is the perfect book that will terrify and stump you. The book was written in a way that kept me engaged. I especially liked the beginning that introduced us to Jason, Grant and how T.A.P.S was started. Grant was skeptical in the beginning until he saw first hand what could be out there. I recommend the book to everyone even if you are skeptical do not believe in the paranormal. Maybe you will learn something new and interesting.

I liked the stories, although some things kept getting restated. It was refreshing to hear they can admit when there is truly nothing paranormal. Their intergrity seems beyond question, some really good tales.

I love reading fantasy, urban fantasy and fiction books with magic. I adore the. But when it comes to real life, I'm more skeptical, not inclined to believe in things supernatural or paranormal. I've never watched a full episode of the TV show "Ghost Files" in the Sci Fi channel (yes, I know it's now called Sy Fy but that's stupid so I use the better, old name) but I have watched a few minutes here and there while channel surfing. What little I saw didn't impress me. So when I was offered this book, I was uncertain. I'm pretty sure I'm not the target audience. Still, in the end, I decided to do it and I enjoyed it, somewhat to my surprise.

As mentioned in the blurb, the book is an omnibus edition, combining two earlier books. The first book, Ghost Hunting, gives a brief history of the T.A.P.S. the organization that the ghost hunters work for and then we get chats of 42 cases from the early years. Some of the cases are from before they got their television show but most are from the show. The main narrator is Jason, with Grant offering a brief synopsis of his thoughts after each case file. Jason Hawes has a light, clear, friendly writing style, like he's talking with you over a beer or coffee. The written case files recap the episodes but also show us their thought processes and reasons for taking or refusing a case. Hawes stresses repeatedly that when they take a case, they are trying to verify possible supernatural activity, using scientific methods. They don't promise that they will certify a place as haunted and have often come away from a case with negative results. In Hawes' words,

"Grant and I insisted on a more rational approach. Before we would ever say a place was home to a supernatural entity, we needed to have proof. It was a significant departure.

Although I already have these two books individually having them in one is great! I believe in the paranormal but I also know just because you have a floor that creaks it's not a ghost walking around your house. I respect the way that Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson conduct their investigations- TAPS goes in trying to debunk the claims rather than instantly saying a place is haunted as other investigators do. Reading how they handle their cases and the conclusions they reach is very interesting. Skeptics of the paranormal should read this. They can see the results of a true and scientific investigation (as scientific as possible in the developing world of paranormal investigations). Jason and Grant don't tell people what to believe. They reveal their results, give their opinions and let you decide.

I've always had an interest in these types of books and such. Chalk it up to growing up with a cemetery behind my house. I liked it, overall. Details some of their cases, some that were seen on the TV series and some that weren't. Gives insight into how T. A. P. S. and the show came to be what it is today. Some stories were good, some were scary and others... well, you'll just have to see for yourself.

Love the short stories. I don't get a lot of time to read, so that format is great. Also love the little tip and explanations throughout the stories. Good reading if you love the paranormal like I do.
